So excited - thanks for all the great posts and pictures - we now have 2 cabana's booked #2 and #3 for our march 3 dream cruise - now to find someone to share the 2nd one as we are only 9 people traveling so we have 3 spots and would hate for those 3 to not be used by someone!

This thread has made me so exicted to get these!

Thanks again - looking forward to more pictures and reports.

Hi Krisann! Wish we were on that cruise with you too since there are 3 of us! It will be so different going on a 3-day after the really longer ones, huh! But we decided to do it once - 3/24!!

Have fun!!

I had been thinking about getting one, but if we are going during winter and the days are not really all that hot?

Is $100 per hour worth it?

That's what I keep thinking! What if we only stay for a while? Or decide to go back to the ship due to the weather not being all that warm or whatever -- and in our case, I would be the one thinking about our "investment."

I may just be too cheap for this lol, unless we really want to spend the whole day, which it sounds like a lot of people are & that would be the smart way to do it. .....I can just see me now, You guys come back here! You can see a movie anytime! I just paid too much for you not to enjoy this! Now, have fun da@@it!!

Is it even all day?

I've been reading here about going back to the ship around 4pm?

How early would you be able to get to it?

Thank you all.

These are new to all of us and it really does help.

I do like the post from the gentlemen who stated the treated him like a king(maybe not his exact words).

We've gotten out there by 9 or 9:30 actually in the past - maybe 10. It's possible to make a long day of it, but we just never have stayed that long. One time we did an early excursion, enjoyed the beach a bit, had lunch & stayed a little longer....never more than 4 hrs or so.

But I think the idea of the cabana is just that - you have what you need to stay longer & not have to go back to the ship. I just know my family is not likely to stay that long, but who knows?? With a cool place to take "shelter" it could make all the difference.

Response I received from Concierge Services re: cancellation policy for the cabanas: . You would have up to 3 days before the cruise to change, modify, cancel any port adventure including cabanas. They would be billed to your shipboard account.

So I guess it means checking the weather report a lot!!

GREAT NEWS:
Just got off the phone with DCL concierge. They have changed their policy and we can now book additional guests into the cabana for $50 per person.

Just to clarify, 6 guests are included in the price of the cabana. The additional charge is for any additional guests.

THANK YOU DCL!!!

This is not an aerial view, obviously, but a view from the path near Pelican Plunge looking towards the cabanas on the new part of the family beach (but they have their own private beach). I took this on November 5th, 2010.

This will make a lot of people very happy. Hopefully, they will have some sort of limit though, so people won't try to stuff as many people as possible in one cabana.

Ok I'll tell them we need 10 carts to bring our group over and 7-8 pictures of the good punch to start!
